president chiu and supervisor kim but many of you, supervisor tang and others, that strengthen the resolution of the whole. it is time i think for our city to think more creatively about what city hall can do to support city college . in this time of need we held a hearing of the budget committee last week where we started to think about in-kind support, whether the electricity or water bills, but also in-kind support for elections of the trustees of the college board system. also other ideas for how we can be more supportive. my hope is, after this resolution, i hope that is passed . overwhelmingly here at the board and we can put our heads together i know the mayor and the controller and others also sat down with the former chancellor and others last year at this time to come forward to provide some economic and management support as well. but my hope is that we continue to move after we have acted on this resolution. first that the resolution calls the college to use as much funds to the ballot opposition prop a, to use resources for classroom use and acknowledges is amended

i have, supervisor tang brought up a good point about accreditation and why there was not necessarily strong instance of maybe the board taking a more active role in support of city college for support of the accreditation because clearly that is the most important thing at this time. >> supervisor mar: when the accreditation board came to visit, that was the last thing they wanted, for us to be involved. i think that the timing of this is really important. i assumed as many in the drafting of this that we all want to see accreditation . as if they don't have accreditation they don't continue as an institution is in the explicit mentioning of this shows that we are strongly supportive of efforts by the trustees, interim chancellor, and the temporary trustee to achieve accreditation. i think that as we move towards june third-fifth, , with the commission hearings are happening this is a good statement of support. . >> supervisor breed: the last thing that i want to say is, i'm happy to work with you supervisor mar, maybe in a public hearing or somethin

not understood] campbell. ~ >> good morning, chair tang, supervisor campos, supervisor chu. [speaker not understood] campbell from the budget analyst office. page 4 of our report we show the expenditures for the match. this does require 50% match of 461,000. it would pay for 1.5 existing deputy juvenile probation officers in the juvenile probation department, and one social worker in the public defenders office, existing position. as well as some travel time consultant services and some other services. it also, however, would create one new social worker position in the juvenile probation department. this would have a retroactive hire date to january of 2013. it amends the annual salary ordinance to create a 0.4fte in the existing year. we make a recommendation to amend the ordinance to specify the disposition is a grant funded position, that it terminates when the grant funds terminate. one of the things that is important when we discuss with the juvenile probation department is they do want this to be an ongoing position. they will ask for it to be a general fund position if the gr
's perspective. mr. naff. >> good morning, supervisor tang, supervisor campos, and supervisor chiu. my name is jay napp. [speaker not understood]. before i start i want to talk about the basic concepts around open data, what it is and why it's important. open data in its simplest form is machine developed raw data sets available to the public without any restrictions. so, what does that really mean? what that means is it's our excel spreadsheets, our access databases, it's all the other databases that we manage and store data really we're stewards of this data for the public. and it's our responsibility to share that information back with the public. obviously making sure that we're complying with privacy and security policies that we have in place. so, why is this important? it improves transparency and accountability, no doubt. but what's interesting is it also drives economic development. it's created new industries like gps. it's created weather information, multi-billion dollar industries. locally companies like appaliscious, mom apps and many others have been fueled by open data. they

today another item that you will be hearing on supervisor tang's reintroduction on the awning replacing during the month of may. we did this last year for small businesses to replace and refresh their business look. last year we had about 10 permits that came in during that fee waiver period. we are hoping that maybe next year we'll have more advanced preparation for this and there will be an opportunity for this supervisors office and myself to do more outreach so small businesses are aware of this opportunity during the month of may. we are observing into the month of may, small business awareness month as well as building safety month that we do every year. one other catch up item is on the toxic legislation that i have mentioned to you in previous reports and the city attorney is coming up with another version based on from dbi and from the puc and b [!ez dpw and going over this, essentially this will expand the zone for these projects beyond just the perimeter we had for many many years. so we are likely to have many more projects that will fall into this expanded toxic area. the
